Israeli Occupation Forces Shoot Palestinian North of Hebron

M.Y | DOP -

Israeli occupation forces Tuesday shot a Palestinian in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Mohammad Awad, a local media activist, said that Israeli occupation forces intercepted a funeral procession in the southern West Bank town, preventing the mourners and pallbearers from reaching the cemetery at the town entrance and triggering confrontations.

The occupation forces, who occupied the rooftops of several houses near the town entrance, which was closed, opened fire towards the mourners and pallbearers hitting a mourner by a live round in the thigh and causing dozens others to suffocate from tear gas.
